The Bad Faith of the White Working Class - The New York Times

Another great piece of writing from J.D. Vance. He’s really on the pulse of what frustrated white working-class people are feeling and thinking. This rings so true for me both as a believer and a guy with lots of frustrated church folk friends:

A Christianity constantly looking for political answers to moral and spiritual problems gives believers an excuse to blame other people when they should be looking in the mirror.

We really do need honest self-reflection and criticism in the church today. I appreciate Vance’s bravery to call it out. Hopefully, more of us can find that courage and strength.
